2017-11-14 06:01

Westridge Yankees continued their revival with a 4-0 victory against Lavender Hill at Turfhall Softball Stadium on Saturday.

Megan Cable played a pivotal role in the Yankees team, giving up a single hit by Kelly Thompson, while striking out seven of the eighteen batters she faced.

Yankees got off to a flying start, scoring two runs in their first turn at bat. Glynis Koopman (2-3) and Charmelle Witbooi (2-2) both hit triples off pitcher Chesternay Fortune, who gave up a total of four hits.

Kenfac Phillies got a staggering thirteen hits off Falcons pitcher Nicolene Jones to record an unexpected 12-0 victory in Pinelands.

Phillies’ batting prowess was clear with eight batters getting hits. Leading the onslaught were Carla Swanepoel, Chelsea Cohen and Faith Beukes, all batting 2-3.

Cohen also performed admirably on the pitching rubber, striking out six and giving up only two scattered singles from the fourteen batters she faced.

Cohen will be tested this coming week when she faces the big hitting champions, Glenthorn A’s, at Turfhall.

Tantasport kept their sights on a good finish this season with another convincing victory against VOB (11-4).

Nawaal Nacerodien (3-3, including a triple) Roxanne Albertyn (2-3) and Danielle Pienaar (2-3, including two triples) were the pick of the Tanta batters.

Albertyn and Shanine Groepies shared the pitching duties for Tanta and gave up a total of six hits.

Megan Fillmore was on the rubber for VOB, surrendering 10 hits.

Normies continued their quest to return to the super league by maintaining their unbeaten run in the major league with a convincing 17-4 win against Kuils River Cougars.

This coming week Normies face fellow former super league side St Martins.

Falcons continued their unbeaten run in the first league with another sterling performance against Kenfac Phillies, winning 11-2 in Pinelands.

Westridge Yankees continued their dominance in the second league with another big victory (13-4) against Devonshire Rovers.
